LATEST: Hazlitt Theatre cancel Andrew Lawrence gig over racist tweets

Monday 12th July 2021

THE HAZLITT Theatre has cancelled an Andrew Lawrence's performance due to take place in October after he made racist tweets about England's black footballers.

Parkwood Theatres have pulled his gig in the wake of his offensive tweets following last night’s final, and the comic has since deleted his Twitter account.

A Hazlitt Theatre spokesman said: "Andrew Lawrence has used social media platforms to express remarks that do not reflect the values of Parkwood Theatres.

"Therefore we have taken steps to cancel his performance at the Hazlitt Theatre in October 2021. All customers that had tickets for this performance will be contacted by our box office in order for them to receive a full refund."
